I bought these for a camping/hiking trip to Utah late spring. They are very comfortable and took almost no breaking-in. They were great for wearing around camp and general desert hikes. Arch support could be better, and the insoles are not removable to wash, unless you separate the glue. The soft sole was great for sand and gripping rocks in the desert. But on that note, these were horrible when we went to the LaSal Mountain range which was loose rock. There is no midsole shank so my feet were in pain during the descent. Rocks stabbing you in the foot after a 3000 foot ascent are not pleasant.
I would say these are great for general hikes, camping, etc. But if you terrain is going to get rocky, get something with a stiffer sole and a little more support. I'll be getting some new insoles for these.
